ESX 3.5 and lsof / ps - long paths not shown

Hi, I have an orphaned VMDK which is in a place it shouldn't be (inside VC vm folder!), tried ps and lsof to show more info on this file, but since 3.5 both commands outputs are truncated because of paths depth. Also tried cat on all VMXes of the VMs I have around on my 2 nodes cluster, but no machine seems to have it linked. Anyway, timestamp of the file keeps updating like if it was in use.

What else could I try?

Thanks
